The Most Influential Fashion Shows and Collections of the Past 20 Years

People, particularly fashion connoisseurs all over the world are excited now that the dates for the Paris fashion week 2016 have been announced. Every year, it is not just the slew of famous fashion models, or the celebrity style statement dresses that create the frenzy surrounding this event, but the prospect of making style history, being on the cover of fashion magazines like Vogue or Elle, the outlet that it allows for creativity or just the freedom of self-expression through fashion, which sends people in a tizzy.

Let’s take this moment to recall some of the most iconic and influential fashion shows and collections from the pat twenty years:

-The Alexander McQueen Fall Collection of 2009

This particular McQueen show, titled “Horn of Plenty”, was a dedication to the designer’s mother, and undoubtedly divided the world of fashion into two. While the entire set was made up of smashed mirrors, chairs and other such garbage, the show was, arguably, a poke at the fashion industry itself, a parody of the orgy of consumerism that it has become.

Each model sported plastic sex-doll type exaggerated red lips, and head accessories which were made by Philip Treacy, were constructed using metal cans, making the entire collection even more eerie and abstract. Elements from previous McQueen shows like the jeweled armor top from his Spring 2000 collection were also reused.

-The Prada Spring Collection of 1996

What Miuccia Prada did in 1996, was bring back gold and traditionally unattractive colors like avocado green, bright yellow and so on, along with big and bold prints and patterns to fashion week. This was not a surprise, since Prada has a standing history of defying traditional set norms of beauty and the acceptable codes of modern fashion.

Every model could be seen sporting a myriad of unconventional trend like awkward sandals, suits and skirts made of corduroy fabric, some hand painted designs intended to clash with their base fabrics.

-The Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer Collection of 2014

While this show marked the end of Marc Jacobs’s contract with Louis Vitton, the show was anything but sad. Inspired by the showgirl trend, he dedicated this show to the “showgirl in all of us”. Inspirations from fashion legends like Miuccia Prada and Coco Chanel were blatantly apparent in all of the forty-one pieces that were showcased.

Each model was seen sporting headgears by Stephen Jones and some of the looks were paired with biker jackets. But what made them unconventional was the fusion between the showgirl style and the addition of black feathers, jewels and tassels, to create a glamorous Gothic effect.

-Hussein Chalayan’s Between Collection of 1998

Arguably one of the most outrageous and moving collections in the history of fashion, Hussein Chalayan created resonating waves with his collection in the year 1998, when he used his fashion to look at the social status of Muslim women.

While most models wore white chadors of varying lengths, the show ended with one final model wearing nothing but a floor length black candor. When asked about his decision to work on such a sensitive topic, the designer replied that rather than making a religious statement, his collection was to show the loss of individual identity as one conforms to religious codes.

-Yohji Yamamoto Spring Collection of 1999

Inspired by the designer’s love for the western wedding ritual, this collection was termed “modern romantic”, where each dress was layered. As the models took off one dress, another was revealed underneath it.

A myriad of fabrics like lace, ivory, satin and tulle were used for the geometric and advanced-for-its-time designs. Just because it was a wedding collection, the designer did not shy away from pantsuits and two pieces.
